This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with a design of traditional Japanese musical instrument such as 'tsuzumi'(Japanese drum) and 'shou'(Japanese wind instrument), 'matsu'(pine tree), 'botan'(peony) and 'sakura'(cherry blossom) on fan, which is embroidered.
It also has 'egasumi'(hazy mist) design, which is dyed.
'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) is added to the design.
Textile is exquisite silk with woven 'hanabishi'(flower diamonds) pattern and has light touch.

The pattern at otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.
The 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) has the design on the outside same as 'otaiko'(square bow) design, so you need to devise a way to tie this obi.

It has discoloration, patinas and some yellowish stains on the base by ages.
It has large loose stitches on the embroidered part of the 'maegara', so it is necessary to repair the part.
It has some other flaws such as folding line, so for the details please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
